Reported Missing - Durham Police BBC

Discussion in 'SMB' started by Sandboy, Apr 13, 2017.

  1. no thread from last night ?

    interesting programme showing the resources needed to search for the many folk reported missing, 2 kids last night, both bullying victims

    the way the copper spoke to the young lad was brilliant, found common ground and something the lad was interested in to engage him, I didn't have a clue what he was talking about but it appeared to work

    I watched and was surprised no one mentioned it too as it was Darlington. You had to feel for that friendless lad with learning disabilities and his superhero obsession. I found myself hoping the mother would get him involved in some kind of group activities or get some support.

    It's about a missing 28yr old next week and still with the Durham police.

    I was more concerned about how the fuck he got to shields on the bus with his ticket....................

    That made me smile too tbh. But he looked like a big lad, I don't think him wandering about on his own would make people think anything about it. Until he speaks, then you could tell he was vulnerable.

    I haven't seen the show, but well done the police.

    I have however seen the clip of the lad with the copper in the van. I have nee idea what they were talking about either, but it worked.

    They should show all the time wasted on missing kids from local authority care ,
    Who aren't missing at all , their just out at all hrs doing what they like because they can do what they like !
    Care homes can't even lock the front door

    I never used to blame the kids cos I know for a fact I would have done the same given that freedom at that age

    I thought it was well done and interesting. The second case with the young girl threatening suicide I felt a bit uncomfortable with it. Yes it had a 'happy' ending in that she was found but I just wondered that featuring her problems on TV could have had a detrimental effect on her. She was running away from bullying and the kids who had bullied her could see the results. Some might have regretted their actions but some little buggers would have enjoyed it.
     
  10. forgot about that, he must have changed somewhere surely ?

    I thought that about the first lad until they put that bit on the end

    They don't so much now though do they. They class a lot of regular missing kids as absent and don't bother looking for them unless it gets past 72 hours.

    I was thinking the same as you but for different reasons. I wonder what the stats are for those reported missing and not being looked for by police.

    2 year ago they were treat the same ,
    Entire set of nightshift could be spent reporting and looking for 4 or 5 from the same home

    I only saw the bit about the Ferryhill lads with two mothers. It was well filmed and the police came over well.

    Bullying can have devastating consequences.

    Of course there was not a thread on it. It showed the police and the great work they do. Didnt fall into the agenda some have on here

    that was excellent. As someone who works with children with learning disabilities and various social issues, I had plenty respect for the officer chatting to and giving advice to Joshua in the police car. He seemed to have a good grasp of the situation.

    I really hope Joshua has got some support and his Mother has got him involved in some group activities other than sitting in his bedroom. I was hoping there'd be a little bit of info at the end saying something to that effect.

    Following that police will have put in a detailed form which can be shared amongst partner agencies. Before that though it will go through a dept which can alert support groups/charities where applicable
